Well, today I am off to the emergency because I am bleeding more than I should be according to my GP. My surgeon is off on holidays until the 16th so this visit is to just make sure everything is normal and not Abby-normal😁. It sucks but better to be safe than sorry.
Now, it is another Oscar round over at Wandering Through The Shelves it is all about animated films. Snow White win a special Oscar back in 1937, well, one regular Oscar and 7 small ones, but animated films were not recognized until Beauty Adn The Beast when that film was up for Best Picture. This finally woke up the Oscar people to recognize the people who create animated films. Here are my 3...
I love this first animated feature the best because of the unique way all the fairy tales were brought to life. I laughed so hard at the evil way they dealt with the 3 bears. Poor Mama Bear is taken away by that Lord Farquaad only later to see her as a bear rug. I was shocked and laughed so hard..maybe I am evil. Anyway, all the magical creatures are to be taken away but the talking donkey escapes and ends up at the bad ogre’s place-Shrek which means “Terror” in German. Somehow, Shrek and donkey must fight a misunderstood dragon to save the beautiful princess in the tower. It is very funny and touching even. Worth looking up.
2. THE INCREDIBLES-2004
I have to see this one again since it’s been a long time since I saw it in the theatre. Basically, people with superpowers have given up fighting evil and have regular jobs because regular folk are not happy with them. Hubby works in some pencil pushing drab place and dreams of fighting evil. He has super s5rength while his wife is very elastic. They have 2 kids with their own powers and all of them somehow end up at an evil man’s lair and mat fight him to save mankind. Something like that. It’s quite witty and I love the lady who makes their outfits which seems to be a cross between Coco Chanel, Anna Wintour and Edith Head which turns out to be my favourite character.
3. TOY STORY 3- 2010
I still have to see the latest Toy Story but this one is quite a good movie in this franchise. We now know all the characters since this is the 3 movie, but it is well written and a heartfelt one. Basically, the kid has grown up and is off to college. He decides to give his toys away but, at the last minute, decides against this but the box of toys are mistakenly taken away to a daycare centre. They meet other toys but soon realize it is run by an embittered teddy bear who has his own minions. Woody and the rest decide to escape but that is easier said than done. It’s quite a nice story and worth a look.
Which 3 films would you choose?
